Sheep farming has always been the profession and source of income for pastoralists. It appears in this analysis that the Covid 19 crisis has had a major impact on the sheep market when we take into account the closure of livestock markets. Also, actions in terms of state policy and the organization of producers are more than necessary in order to ensure the upgrading of the sector in crisis situations. Our field work, and through telephone interviews, showed that the operators of the sheep sector in the Tiaret region are developing new forms of organization to protect themselves against the risk of their herd slipping in the face of the crisis. of Covid 19. These new forms are based on the constitution of social networks and the realization of informal contracts. The main goal is revenue maximization and risk management. The mobilization of agency theory and transaction cost theory has shown that contractual relationships are decisive in the sheep sales strategy in the Tiaret region.
